This is John Arnesen with NetView and System Automation level 2 support.
Are you looking for a way to audit who issues System Automation commands? Or just want to make a notation in the netlog when a System Automation command is issued? The INGCNTL command can do that for you.
Issue command: INGCNTL SET COMMAND_LOGGING=YES
and every time a SA command is issued, a AOF705I message will be written to the netlog containing the command and the options used along with the userid or autotask that issued the command.
Here is an example of what the AOF705I shows:
AOF705I USER1 issued command INGREQ with MYAPL/APL/SAT1 REQ=START SCOPE=ONLY VERIFY=YES SOURCE=OPERATOR PRI=LOW PRECHECK=YES AOF705I USER1 issued command INGIMS with IMS3CTL/APL/KEYC REQ=CMD CMD=/DIS
There is more information on this in Section 2.1.3 Command Logging in the User's Guide
And here is more information on the INGCNTL command in section 2.1.24 INGCNTL in the Programmer's Reference
